Inglewood, CA, October 11, 2014 – A patient who was isolated at Centinela Hospital’s emergency room after being transported from the Los Angeles International Airport earlier this week has undergone all necessary testing consistent with the Centers for Disease Control and Los Angeles County Department of Public Health guidelines. The patient has been approved for discharge with no further evaluation needed.

Says Linda Bradley, CEO of the hospital, “The patient who we were informed had traveled recently from Liberia underwent numerous tests which all came back negative.’’ Centinela Hospital worked closely with CDC, DPH, the state Department of Public Health in taking all necessary steps to ensure that patients, their families, staff, and the community were protected during the evaluation of this patient. The hospital remains fully open and continues to see patients.
